NEW IRIS BOARD MEMBER_Applications from Australia, Asia, New Zealand and South America invited!

 01 Oct 2018

The International Renal Interest Society (IRIS)is pleased to invite applications for membership on the IRIS Board. 

IRISis an independent, international organization whose objectives are to advance veterinary nephrology and to help veterinary practitioners better diagnose, understand and treat kidney disease in cats and dogs.

The successful candidate(s) will be expected to:

  1. be a graduate of a School or College of Veterinary Medicine.
  2. have documented expertise in the discipline and a demonstrated and continuing interest in the advancement of veterinary nephrology.
  3. participate in all online and the annual Board meetings (alternating between the ECVIM Congress and the ACVIM Forum). 
  4. actively contribute to, and support, IRIS initiatives.

Geographic Considerations: 

The IRIS Board strives to have representation from across the globe.  This call for membership will replace a board member from Australia and therefore we encourage applications from veterinary nephrologists from Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and South America.

Application and Selection Process:

Applications, including curriculum vitae and a letter (no more than 500 words) outlining how your expertise and vision would contribute to the objectives of IRIS, must be submitted electronically to the current IRIS President, Dr. Greg Grauer (ggrauer@vet.ksu.edu), by December 1, 2018. The Board will review applications and notify the successful candidate by February 1, 2019 to facilitate his or her attendance at the next IRIS Board Meeting (June 3-5, 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona).
